The Power of Honesty

I can't pretend about my sadness,
I can't pretend about my happiness.
I can't pretend when I'm painless,
I'm good at expressing my emotions.
That's the only way I can be okay,
Not everyone shows their emotions,
But I'm excluding myself because I show mine.
I can't really pretend,
Because when you pretend, that's where it hurts the most.
